Stephen Hillenburg

In 1984, while teaching marine biology at the Orange County Ocean Institute, Stephen created “Bob the Sponge,” an early incarnation of the square-pants’d fellow who came along years later. Stephen claims his love for the undersea world can be traced to his childhood, and the films of the oceanographer Jacques Cousteau.

Did you know?
Steve was originally offered 40 episodes but he said he didn't know if we would even make 13.

Where did the Spongebob theme song come from?

From a personal experience

Hey, what about a nerdy sponge, kind of like an undersea Jerry Lewis!
